Yankee Hill Mite Suppressor
Suppressors have become more and more affordable and popular in those states where they can be owned. The Mite from Yankee Hill is user serviceable, meaning the suppressor will never “fill up” from firing dirty, unjacketed .22 ammunition. Each suppressor includes a disassembly tool in the price. Every sound suppressor YHM makes is full-auto rated and warranted for life from defects in material and workmanship. Price: $283 (plus $200 transfer tax). Yankee Hill Machine Co.
The MEPRO 21 offers a large 30mm diameter lens that allows rapid target acquisition with both eyes open. This was the first reflex sight in the world designed for close quarter combat, and it can be ordered with optional reticles -- dot, triangle, open-x and bullseye. Aiming point illumination is achieved by a fiber optic collector system during the day, and by a miniature self-powered tritium light source at night. Transition between the two systems is instantaneous and automatic to assure good contrast between the aiming dot and the target area. Meprolight
